BACKGROUND Studies on innate immunity have benefited from the introduction of zebrafish as a model system. Transgenic fish expressing fluorescent proteins in leukocyte populations allow direct, quantitative visualization of an inflammatory response in vivo. It has been proposed that this animal model can be used for high-throughput screens aimed at the(More)
Tissue injury has been employed to study diverse biological processes such as regeneration and inflammation. In addition to physical or surgical based methods for tissue injury, current protocols for localized tissue damage include laser and two-photon wounding, which allow a high degree of accuracy, but are expensive and difficult to apply. In contrast,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this work is to understand whether shared genetic influences can explain the association between obesity and cognitive performance, including slower and more variable reaction times (RTs) and worse response inhibition. METHODS RT on a four-choice RT task and the go/no-go task, and commission errors on the go/no-go task for 1,312 twins(More)
The popularity of smartphones makes them the most suitable devices to ensure access to services provided by smart cities; furthermore, as one of the main features of the smart cities is the participation of the citizens in their governance, it is not unusual that these citizens generate and share their own data through their smartphones. But, how can we(More)
Children with autism with sensorimotor impairments found difficult to control their movements when responding to sensory stimuli. Neurologic music therapy, combining music and movement helps individuals with disabilities to better control their movements when following audible cues. In this paper, we present the iterative design process that led to the(More)
